    2 For 1 day

    Here are a couple of shots from Tuesday's walk to a local park, used primarily for picnics fishing and exercise. It is where I did a lot of my d'fly shots last year.
    Bald eagle at altitude. had to do quite a bit of PP.
    Fish in pond, required contrast enhancement.

    The sequence looks like the eagle is eyeing dinner.

    Nice Eagle, I'm surprised you have them at your local park I thought they were critically endangered or was that 30 years ago

    We have several pairs in the area, quite close to the city. They range over a large area from the nesting sites. This park is less than a mile from my apartment. Yep, they have been coming back quite well even in the lower 48. They are very common in parts of AK (Alaska) to the point that in some areas are almost pests. It was 200' est. up and at an angle of 70 quite a reach even for the 7100 w/the 70-300.

    Seems since DDT was banned in the late 1970's, most endangered bird species have rebounded. Here it was both Eagles and California Condors, but Gulls, Pelicans, Osprey, Red-tail Hawks, and even Wild Turkeys, have also benefited.

    I'm still eying that lens on e-bay. No success yet. Seems I'm always working when the auctions end, or end up beyond my budget. Luckily the birds seem to be waiting...
